TV Wall Decoration

I'm not sure how to decorate the open space about a TV. In theory, you'll be looking at the TV when you look at that wall, so you don't want a busy piece of art or something above it. There was a small white shelf on the wall when you moved in (as seen above) and we decided to put a few open cubes up to add a little something. I would love to get a flat panel TV stand and a flat screen TV to open up some space, but that's not currently in the budget.

Instead we added these cubes, which hold some fun items. The jar of sand is from our sand ceremony in our wedding and the wooden heart was a souvenir from a trip I took to Austria.

In the above picture you can see how it looks now. I'm curious what other people put above their TVs.

  1. I like the cubes, very creative! Our (also not flat screen) TV is in a wooden cabinet, so we don't have to worry about what to put above it. However, I'm headed up to Oregon this summer to clean out my childhood room (it's been 11 years since I moved out & it looks like a dusty shrine in there - my mom won't throw out anything!) and give it a makeover into a nice reading/TV/family room for my mom. I had been thinking about what to put above her (also not flat screen) TV once I moved it in there and these cubes are definitely making it to the short list of ideas!

  2. You'll have to let me know what you decide. It's a tricky decorating conundrum.
